managerial job in the world, president of the united states, leader of the free world. my question was how does he do it? how does he decide? how does he make decisions? how does he govern? not the context of the decisions, that's interesting, too, but what is the leadership style? i looked around for books a serious sustained way. >> host: do you see this as a campaign document coming out very close to the elections? >> guest: they do like to time things when people are paying attention and most americans tune in to politics around election time. >> host: each one of the things the with surprise to readers use it twice in the book those democrats this is a very critical study of the obama leadership all of the sources were democrat. tell us about that decision. >> guest: some of the politics longtime technical people in the defense department or the intelligence services and so on but for the most part these are people that worked alongside the president in one capacity or another in the white house and we need federal agencies in the house of congress to see him up close. what i discover

. >> the united states will not allow iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. we'll do what it takes to prevent that from happening. all options remain on the table. the president has been very clear and that includes the military option. >> shannon: our ambassador to the united nations says the u.s. will stand with israel and do what it takes to stop oran from developing a nuclear weapon, as israeli prime minister netanyahu says iran is 7 to 8 months away from being able to build a nuclear bomb and demands that the united states give a red line to iran. we start with peter doos gee senator john mechanic cane said an hour and-a-half that he thinks the united states is sing exactly the wrong main to the israelis about whether or not we will have their back, if iran gets closer to building a nuclear weapon. >> we keep tells the israelis not to attack, shouldn't we be telling the iranians that that we are with israel and they should back down. >> reporter: the u.s. bamdass dorto the u.n. says that the united states will do whatever it takes to prevent iran from acquiring the nuclear weapon and the
.s. diplomatic posts are undersiege right now after the killing of the united states ambassador in libya. so how dangerous is it now for americans abroad? also, as the u.s. moves to hunt down the killers, libyan authorities make at least one arrest. but was it a mob attack or something much more ominous? >>> and mitt romney's taking heat even from some republicans for his harsh criticism of president obama's foreign policy. is he ready to dial back or double down again? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> u.s. warships are moving toward libya today as president obama vows that no act of terror will go unpunished. his words. but in the grim aftermath of the u.s. consulate attack in libya which left the u.s. ambassador and three other americans dead, there are still serious questions as to which group was responsible. meantime, violent protests sparked by an anti-islamic film spreading across the muslim world today. in cairo, crowds have again gathered outside the u.s. embassy right now. they've been throwing rocks and fire bombs as police answer with tear gas. in yemen, police o
. the bodies were flown to the united states and president obama said the attackers in libya will see justice. listen. >> we will continue to do everything in our power to protect americans serving overseas, whether that means increasing security at our diplomatic posts, working with host countries which have an obligation to provide security and making it clear that justice will come to those who harm americans. most of all, even in our growth, we will be resolute. but we are americans. we hold our head high. >>trace: the white house said president obama has ordered a review of the security situation as u.s. diplomatic facilities around the world. we are hearing from lawmakers who were briefed by the c.i.a. they describe the attacks in libya as and i quote, "coordinated, commando-style and well planned, a likely act of terrorism." now to wendell live from the white house. wendell, the administration is denying there was intelligence they had prior to these attacks, correct? >>reporter: yes, press secretary, jake carney, denied there was a report that intelligence suggested an attack in bengh
of pressure when it comes to this. not only from the united states, but also from its own people. now, whether these people that are detained are really involved in the attack or have links to this extremist group is something that we'll have to see and see what kind of reaction we see from the extremists too. >> do we have any idea if they're related or affirmative actionated with al qaeda? there's a lot of talk about that yesterday, the possibility that that was the organization. >> not much has been revealed by the government by this group, but what we do know, suzanne, is this is not an isolated incident. over the past few months we have seen an uptick in similar attacks targeting western interests. the u.s. consulate itself was targeted in an attack back in june when a bomb detonated outside the embassy. those attacks taken place in benghazi was targeted by a extremist group, it was called the brigades. this is a true al qaeda group. we also do know that there are groups with links direct links to al qaeda that operate in the eastern part of the country. >> what is the security situation
in the foreign service, he won friends to the united states in far-flung places. he made those people's hopes his own. during the revolution in libya, he risked his life to help protect the libyan people from a tyrant. he gave his life helping them build a better country. people loved to work with him. as he rose through the ranks, they loved to work forehand. he was known not only for his courage, but for his smile. goofy, but contagious. for his sense of fun and that california cool. in the days since the attack, so many libyans, including the ambassador, who is with us today, have expressed their sorrow and solidarity. one young woman, her head covered and her eyes haunted with sadness, held up a handwritten sign that said "thugs and killers do not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a difficult week for the state department's and for
it in the united states, at least, after the protests started. >> but i understand that the government, that the muslim brotherhood government basically knew about this video and it was a big topic of conversation in cairo. >> it certainly was a topic of conversation in the days leading up to the protest there were ultra conservative parties calling for the protests and the united states embassy as well knew the protest was coming and told its staff to go home early that day. >> i think logical thinkers know that this was that this was a call drop of hatred you don't stand by and let this happen. the muslim brotherhood did that but they called for a big big million man march today which they then said don't do it after president obama read morsi the riot act on the telephone. i guess that's what happened, right? >> well, it's fascinating to watch the muslim brotherhood adapt to leadership and adapt to something more than being in opposition party which it was for so long. they are trying to play to their very conservative base here in cairo and egypt while presenting a friendlier face
are being smaller and one way you do that as is this idea of having crews fly from the united states to overseas operating theaters to replace each other to a policy sometimes called cruise swaps or think swaps. it's hard to do and in fairness to the navy it's already been done on some ships and in fairness to the navy so i think that's the kind of idea that needs to be expanded and generalize because we need more innovative ways of using late lamented -- limited sources of what we are to have. >> going forward regardless of who is president the administration may change but the math remains the same. there are some hard fiscal issues they will have to deal with an and defense is going to have hard strategic choices and i look forward to getting past the election when we can see whatever administration is in charge and what they start to do in terms of making the strategic choices but the longer you wait the tougher the decisions get. this idea that both sides are pursuing, setting a particular budget target and saying that is what we are going to stick to and fill in the strategy be
got worse for the united states overseas today as anti-u.s. protests over the film that denigrates the prophet, muhammed, spread to nearly 20 countries now. the violence has erupted in what is really the cradle of the arab spring in cairo, where the ambassador was stormed. benghazi, the attack that killed four americans, including the first ambassador to die in decades. this was a somber day at andrew's air force base as the four americans came home, as the leaders of their government looked on. it is where we begin our coverage tonight with nbc's andrea mitchell. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> reporter: to the mournful tones of "nearer my god to thee," the caskets came home, four public servants, arriving to the embrace of family and the secretary of state, brought together in grief. >> today, we bring home four americans who gave their lives for our country, and our values. >> reporter: four americans, the president said, who knew the danger and accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal, they lived it. >> glenn dougherty never shied from adventure, he believed in his life he
shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> earlier today secretary of state hillary clinton stepped up her criticism of the anti-muslim film that first prompted the protests. >> to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensib reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. >> joining me now live from cairo, nbc's similar maceda. give us the best description of how things are right now. >> reporter: well, ironically benghazi remained calm today. if you look at it, perhaps the libyan government's quick crackdown there on those alleged perpetrators. four individuals were arrested today. there's a manhunt going on that might have had a tamping-down effort. even there in benghazi, the u.s. government is taking no chances. we understand that all u.s. personnel has now been or have been evacuated to tripoli and only emergency staff are kept at the embassy here. here in cairo it's another 24 hours of protests against that made in usa anti-islam film. overnight last night some dramatic scenes near the u.s
and what it is. here is what we know. investigators in the united states and libya say the astack on the consulate was likely an act of terror and likely timed to mark the 9-11 terrorist attacks. the libyans say it was a two-part operation. investigators are looking into whether it was an inside job. one that included locals and a raid on a supposedly secret safehouse. the chairman of the u.s. house intelligence committee says it was a coordinated military style, commando type operation. tonight spokesmen at the white house, the pentagon, state department, all say they can not confirm the libyan report of arrests. and u.s. officials are urging everyone involved to take the arrest news with a grain of salt. a senior libyan official says four men are in custody and we're conducting ways of interrogating them because they are suspected of helping instigate the events at the u.s. consulate. u.s. intelligence officials have said there is zeroing in on a certain militant group that fits the al-qaeda signature. the f.b.i. sent teams of personnel to libya and the boss at the justice depar
the united states in the wake of that antimuslim film. take a look at this map. you can see just how widespread the protests are. even though many have been violent, there were also several peaceful protests in many countries. and the violent protests were actually a lot smaller than some may have expected. now, many americans just really don't understand why these protests are breaking out across the world. joining me in studio now to help break it down, michael han lan, specialist in foreign policy. good morning, michael. thank you for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> i have to say, the first question i have when these protests first started breaking out, seemed to be a very serious situation. then as they continue to go on and be a little bit sporadic, i wonder how much is authentic, related to the film, how much of it is just an excuse to protest america? >> i think it's a great question. it's also very important you emphasize correctly, but in a way a lot of people haven't, these protests are generally small. a number of them are nonviolent. today it's already midday sunday and mos
interests. and two united states officials now tell the associated press that an air strike has killed the group's second in command. the yemenis say it appears a u.s. drone fired the missile that killed him. american officials have not confirmed it openly but u.s. forces have previously droned suspects in yemen. the target in this latest strike, a saudi national who fought in afghanistan and did six years at guantanamo bay. that stent in gitmo made him a rock star to his buddies we are told. a yemeni government official earlier told fox news officials have recovered d.n.a. from the site and analyzing it now to confirm that he is dead. the yemenis perhaps a little cautious because previous reports of his death later turned out to be inaccurate. stool was not in session today for some 400,000 students in chicago. after the city's public school teachers went on strike for the first time in more than two decades.

of the united states that still views the united states as a problem, you know, 300-plus million people that view america and the west as an enemy. and so this is the ideology that we continue to combat, and i think that there has been a reticence in recent years to even call it that, to include the word islam when talking about this ideology, but i think it's incredibly important, and not because islam is the problem but modern islam is the solution. when you take a look online and take a look at the messaging out there you see a good deal of intolerance. a lot of the messages has been dialed back. they are not overtly calling for violence as they did pre 9/11. you are still seeing a hatred and utter distain for western values that come through there and i think that continues to power this ideology, and perhaps, again, not driving us to violence, but certainly seeing, you know, probably stopping just short of that, and so the question that i have is, at what point do they just turn that up just a little bit and the violence could begin again? jenna: a lot of work to be done. thank you

: well the united states and egypt are trying right now to feel each other out. it's kind of like an awkward first date, because before the revolution the muslim brotherhood was an adversary of sort of the united states and there was a lot of mistrust there. so, right now they're trying to build a relationship trying to come together, but the military the egyptian and the american military do have close ties, and this is one of the military officials in the united states said. >> ian lee, thank you. >>> now to libya, where authorities have announced four arrests -- >> and we continue to do so today. we look forward to continuing our bilateral defense relationship. as you know, the secretary recently visited egypt, had very productive discussions there with president morsi and others and our relationship with egypt we believe, is on the right track when it comes to our military ties. >> why not call them an ally? >> i don't think that we really need to get into semantics. i think i've said what i have said. >> reporter: diplomatic tensions may exist, but the
